Gabby Douglas has made headlines not only for her second gold medal win in the Olympics, but for her NOT putting her right hand over her heart during the National Anthem.
She received an out pour of twitter backlash and released this response:
Could it be a political stance? Or is it an act of defiance since she was unable to compete in the all around competition to really help bring in the gold for team USA.
It seems as though the spotlight has been pulled from above her and shed on Simone Biles who according to Mary Lou Retton is, "The top gymnast in history".
Hopefully this act does not take away from Gabby's great accomplishment in the 2016 Rio Olympics.
